TUESDAY COMICS INSPIRATION

What comics had you inspired this week? For Cynthia, it wasn’t necessarily comics but it was definitely something graphic with a lot of narrative potential. Emojis! And the fun world of emojipedia.

FREE RESOURCES

Our free resources are always available on the SAW website, and they include a lot of reference to Peanuts. And it turns out we’re not the only ones to celebrate the Schulz classic. Here’s an article that describes the relationship between Charlie Brown and the French magazine Charlie Hebdo.

FROM THE MEMOIR GROUP

American cult, a comics anthology about Cults in America has just launched a kickstarter to cover the cost of production and bring some hard hitting comics-journalism about comics to readers. Robyn Chapman-cartoonist, publisher and editor of the anthology-says, “In American Cult I'm collecting compelling, honest, and deeply human comics about religious cults. The book will be printed in black and white, and will be approximately 180 pages.”
